Recipe: Apple pie lollipops (showing off at a social event with a lot of women)

Because sometimes, you need to show off at a bridal brunch (and bring at least one thing you can eat).

I try to go to all eating events with at least one food item that I can trust.

My cousin is getting married and I made a gigantic and pretty bowl of farmers’ market fruit and these apple pie pops.

I don’t really love apple pie, but I thought this was cute and I think I still struggle a little with wanting to show others you don’t have to sacrifice anything as a vegan. There are workarounds to everything, even pie…

Pie crust recipe from Food 52.

  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (more as necessary) coconut oil, cool enough to be solid
  • 1 tea salt
  • 1 TBS sugar (I used turbinado)
  • 1/2 cup iced water
  • 2 TBS apple chunks
  • In the food processor, mix flour, apples, salt and sugar until mixed.
  • Add coconut oil in pieces, then the water, a little bit at a time.
  • The dough should look like it’s beginning to stick together.
  • Add more water until it looks like you could dump it out as one, big ball.
  • Roll out on floured surface to thin consistency.
  • Cut into identical circles (using a small drinking glass or jar).

Apple pie filling 

  • four smallish apples (I used pink lady), peeled, cored, and chopped – about three cups when done
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup agave nectar
  • TBS apple juice
  • 1/4 cup sugar (I used half turbinado, half white)
  • tea cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 tea vanilla
  • Stir water, agave, apple juice, sugar, cinnamon and cornstarch in pan until thick and bubbling, stirring constantly.
  • (This is my fatal flaw, as I always try to peel and chop the apples during this step and the wet mixture gets too thick. Learn from my mistakes! Stand there and stir! It only takes a few minutes!)
  • Turn off the burner and add vanilla and apples, stirring together until evenly coated.
  • Put a dab of apple mixture in center of a crust circle with lollipop stick.
  • Cover with another circle and squeeze edges together.
  • Use a fork to create that pie-forked-edges look and stab each, so the steam can escape.
  • Rub each with some of the apple mixture and sprinkle with more cinnamon.
  • Bake at 375 14-15 minutes, but really just look for the tops browning.

I bet these would be an awesome (and impressive gift) with some cellophane and ribbon.

I also want to try other fruit mixtures. . . Please let me know if you do make something different.

Blackberry? Strawberry? Mango?! Peaches!!

Mine were a little too big for the lollipop sticks I found at Target. I either need to cut a smaller circle or find larger sticks.

Godspeed, vegan impressers.
